    Barn is really big and spacious. Cons- Badly maintained house Both bathrooms were leaking between the silicone (probably needs redoing). Barn is not suitable for families with young kids. Floor boards were creaky and and some were uneven and even loose which was extremely dangerous for crawlers and toddlers. Walls were really thin. We had white noise machine blasting but it was still very loud downstairs. There were lots of flies around even before we had arrived. Seems to be a clear issue as we found fly spray in the kitchen which we could not use due to chemicals being dangerous for dogs and babies. Beds were also overused- can feel every spring through the mattress. Owners were really lovely but honestly would not go back.

    - Kelly, April 2024

    Thank you Kelly for providing feedback. The mattresses were new 18 months ago and this is the first time anyone has mentioned the issue but we will certainly look to upgrade them. I have also arranged for someone to come and replace the silicone. Thanks for letting us know. I appreciate it can be very stressful holidaying with multiple families with babies, and perhaps agree that the upside down layout of the barn can lead to additional noise when babies are sleeping. The wonderful charm that comes with an authentic barn conversion does mean sound insulation will not be as good as in a modern property. Also flies, I'm afraid, are inevitable in country-life to some extent, but this is not something that has normally been a problem. I'm sorry that Owlbury Hall Barn was not the property for you but I'm pleased that you found us responsive and helpful to your needs. I wish you all the best for the future. Property Owner

The property

Bishop's Castle 3.2 miles.

Situated just over the Wales/England border in Snead, Shropshire, lies Owlbury Hall Barn, a characterful detached, reverse-level barn conversion set on a 11-acre estate.

Family-friendly and pet-friendly, this lovely holiday home is delightfully rural and perfect for a walking or cycling holiday, with the Kerry Ridge visible from the property and a wealth of quaint towns and villages within easy reach.

Arriving, you will find plenty of off-road parking and extensive gardens you can spend warmer days enjoying, including two fenced paddocks so your canine companions can run free.

Inside, the ground-floor hosts the bedrooms and bathrooms, making it easy to unload your bags or jump straight into bed to rest after a busy day of walking.

Upstairs, gather with your loved ones for dinner; choose from a quick bite in the kitchen/diner which has been fitted with everything you could need for a self-catering stay, or the larger dining area in the living/dining room.

After eating, curl up in front of the fire while you watch a film on the Smart TV, or you could relax, unwind and reflect on your day in the hot tub.

When you can tear yourself away, explore the nearby Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or the popular Stiperstones village.

If you want to treat your loved ones to a meal out, the nearby Bishop's Castle has a choice of pubs and eateries to choose from.

Next stop is Montgomery, home to ruins of an 1100s castle and a handful of niche museums.

Further afield, shopping can be found in Ludlow, known for its medieval castle and fresh food market, where you can stock up on delicious produce to cook up a storm with at Owlbury Hall Barn.

No matter the season, Owlbury Hall Barn is a fabulous choice for a memorable holiday in a picture-perfect area.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
